  • Excerpt: Quickly although it lasted. Bought this drive 4 months ago and began to develop problems at boot-up soon after a month or two. Turns out the drive was undesirable causing error immediately after error. Prevent this drive until they get the bugs worked out. Seagate returns look relatively straight forward. Hopefully my replacement drive is more trustworthy... Paid the extra บ for the WD 7200 / 750GB when upgrading my wife's macbook.

  • Excerpt: Previously reliable brand Really high power consumption, which they do not promote. three times the consumption of my 7200RPM Fujitsu (now Toshiba) self-encrypting 320G drive.Does not have any of the sophisticated functions advertised boldly on the Newegg web page:NO encryption as you have been led to feel it had,NO free-fall protection as you have been led to feel it had.

  • Excerpt: Worked nicely for a brief time. About a month soon after installing this in my pc I started getting getting crashes and blue screens. Following lots of components swapping, re-formatting and re-installs it turns out it's the challenging drive causing my concerns. Hopefully my issues are rare with this device. I was really enjoying the large capacity prior to the problems began.

  • Excerpt: Substantial capacity, low expense, higher efficiency Low reliability. Produced chirping noise following many hours of use. Chirping noise became a constant whine. Drive dismounted and then would not mount again, conveniently immediately after moving all of my data onto it. Returning for another brand.

I reformatted the drive with Disk Utility and rebuilt operating process and applications and once more after a couple of days However I had written on the leading of the drive, on the writeable surface (a practice I started sometime ago...

  • Excerpt: High capacity, common thickness... Drive essentially DOA. Cloned fine, the technique started, then hung. Negative. Ran a drive test, failed surface scan. Ran HDD Regenerator, and stopped it about 230 undesirable/repaired sectors.This is not the first Seagate drive I've had poor be bad straight out of the box -- it's the sixth. I'll be sticking with Western Digital, I feel. I know poor sectors occur, but this is really pretty poor.

  • Excerpt: It was good while it lasted - not noisy, not hot, seemed to be as quick as my Hitachi 7200 rpm 500GB drive. I'm glad I read the other critiques right here and was ready that it might die swiftly. Died after 3 weeks Wish I could discover a way to degauss the hard drive (no strong magnets around). I'm not sending it back with my data on it.
